CGFM Certification

Give yourself a competitive advantage by showing your commitment to lifelong learning. The Certified Government Financial Manager (CGFM) is the first certification broad enough to cover the whole field of government financial management—federal, state and local. It measures a wide range of knowledge and skills that a professional needs to succeed in the federal government financial environment, or to meet the unique challenges faced by state and local government financial managers.  
Its education, experience, and ethics requirements have served to elevate even the most seasoned financial professionals.  
To maintain the CGFM certification in an active status, CGFMs must pay the renewal fee by the due date each year and complete at least 80 hours of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) every two years in government financial management topics or related technical subjects.
Don't think the certification gets noticed?  Think again! See the proclamations submitted by chapters from around the nation that proclaimed March as CGFM Month.

Are you ready to make the commitment?  Let the AGA Dallas chapter help! We have study guides available for loan and will help set up study groups.    
For more information, feel free to email or go to the main CGFM website.
